Reference request templates for you to use

We have prepared these templates based on our authorised signatory briefing session. They meet most if not all of the circumstances you are likely to meet. If you wish to vary the content, please ensure that you do not amend the questions the template letters pose to each recipient – these are set out in the direction that we have to ask you to follow. Please feel free to change certain issues of style or tone and remember that you should use your organisation's letterhead when preparing the letters. All the templates are in Microsoft Word format so they can easily be edited.

ID pass regulation

All the ID pass scheme's rules are contained in one convenient document, the ID Pass Application Standard 2019.  This document details the requirements for each type of pass including passes for vehicles.

Comprehensive requirements for the application of a Full ID Pass are contained separately within the Full Airside ID Pass Guidelines.

Most of the regulations set out the ways in which we can authorise and verify access to the critical part of the security restricted area of our airports are contained in the European Regulation Direction 185/2010 (published April 2010).

We have used this direction to prepare the ID Pass Application Standard 2019. Please note that this is an important document and you must agree to keep it where it cannot be accessed by others and destroy it in a secure manner when you no longer require it.

Please note that the contents of the document form the curriculum of our Authorised Signatory training programme.
